  • Publication number: 20210099502
    Abstract: The present technology provides a system wherein context provided in a message in which a content item is shared is preserved in a database that is linked to the content item. Additionally, to help users that are sending a content item provide better context when they are sharing a content item, the present technology provides a sharing user interface that encourages the first user to provide helpful context. Additionally, the present technology provides a sharing interface that can present shared content items along with the context in which the content item was shared.

  • Patent number: 10809304
    Abstract: Systems, devices, media, and methods are presented for adaptively estimating power. The systems and methods measure an electrical potential of a power source coupled to a wearable computing device and determine a current power consumption on the power source. The systems and methods identify a current slope value mapping the electrical potential to an estimated capacity percentage based on the measured electrical potential. The systems and methods determine a correction value based on the current power consumption and the current slope value and generate a current capacity value from the electrical potential and the correction value. The systems and methods cause presentation of a representation of the current capacity value within a power indicator and control one or more processes operating within the wearable computing device based on the current capacity value.
